The bios.h header file is for 16 bit DOS programs. I do not believe DEVC++ can compile 16 bit DOS programs.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

What operating system are you using?

Why not use the standard C/C++ from stdio.h/iostream to get the key?

If you are writing a game/application using graphics, then what graphics package are you using?

With "Modern" operating systems direct access to the computer bios/hardware is not allowed.
